This does look really bad...hype shipments...take pre orders...nothing arrives.

Please keep posts only to actual customers that get their Batch #1 units this week and after.   There are many other threads you can post speculation in.  Thanks.

I posted this in the Avalon batch #1 ships thread on February 4th.

I just called DHL and asked about my shipment status even though I don't have a tracking number. I was surprised when she said she would help me. She asked for my address details and name. Nothing came up. I was one of the earlier orders in the first 50. So I doubt if anyone is going to get their miner this week, but I could be wrong.

Give it a try 1-800-CALL-DHL and let us know.

Wait there are no DHL packages to your entire zipcode for the rest of the week?  
Where do you live Rural East Bumfuckistan?


They checked by Destination Zipcode, Name and Point of Origin. From the 20th of January till today.

Was there a database reload from earlier backup or is someone removing posts?
Cut it with the offtopic posts. They are being removed.

Edit: Geesh. Unless your post is narrowly related to having received an asic/avalon unit (or at least closely related like your shipment info) then it doesn't belong in this thread. See the original post's gigantic type.

Hmm.. Interesting... You ordered from Avalon site, not from taobao or ali? And when did you ordered? It makes me think bad things about delivery dates to all others...

The Chinese customers are definitely not part of the 53 units that were shipped out of the country, but I believe I've read never made it out, which begs the question--where are those units currently? And when they do get into the hands of customers not in China, the shipping boxes should show signs of the hold up of sorts.

Yes, in China Avalon batch #1 are ordered from Avalon site:  store.avalon-asic.com, but use Taobao-alipay payment processor to make a payment.

First, register at store.avalon-asic.com as a batch #1 store member, and place order, then get Avalon batch #1 order number.

Second,  buy Avalon from Taobao.com that ngzhang provided and stick the Avalon batch #1 order number in this item. Them use Alipay as a payment method. After payment complete, ngzhang login taobao.com to change the status from "Buyer has paid" to "The seller shipped".  After  you comfirm that in taobao, then the money is in their way to Avalon development team.



My first batch # 1 order placed in September 2012.

leiyplane, thanks for info. I just wanted to specify that you in same order queue as all others. And that info is make me think even more delays...
BitSyncom, your explanation is highly needed. Give some info on shipping status, cos there is about 4 days to deadline.

I don't see how noone here has received one yet...

I have a package here from DHL, shipped on 2/22 from Shenzhen, arrived today.

Unfortunately, it was not an ASIC...

Just a thought, the only way i see this happening is if the packages were not shipped by DHL and instead by another courier. i.e EMS, China/HK/SG Post,etc. Shipping charges for a box that size with DHL is relatively expensive.

True, but a very short-sighted view. A day or two of mining will pay back any extra carrier charges. Hell, I'd fly to China and bring it back myself and come out ahead.

Vitalik Buterin: How did the shipping process go? When do you expect customers to receive the boxes?

Yifu Guo: We underestimated the shipping cost by like $80 per unit and ran into some issues with customs, so we are already in the red from shipping costs this round and later than we planned. As for when they will arrive, depends on where the customers are, but I think 2 weeks or so.

It does kind of look as if they were mining until a couple days ago so they could make as much much as possible before shipping them...
